How to enjoy chipped, granulated, or loose incense

Zuikun Jirushi chipped incense
 


Burning chipped, granulated, or loose incense is so easy to do!

Follow the images and explanations for the proper method to use for loose incense burning.

Note: Makko, from Japan, is used as a base to smolder incense ingredients over, rather than using charcoal. Dar or laha is Makko's equivalent but comes from Nepal. For this explanation and usage the three products are used in exactly the same way.

Gather together your Koh press (on the left), the makko, and a small utensil for spooning the makko. Gather together your Koh press (on the left), the makko (or dar or laha), and a small utensil for spooning the makko.
An indentation is made in the ash with a "U" shaped koh press. 1.) An incense bowl is filled with white rice ash, which is compacted by tapping lightly on the bottom of the bowl. An indentation is made in the ash with a "U" shaped koh press. If a koh press is not available you can use any small object that will leave a straight line or "U" shaped impression in the ash. 
Press into ash to make an indentation roughly about 1/2 inch deep x 1/2 inch wide. 2.) Press into ash to make an indentation roughly about 1/2 inch deep x 1/2 inch wide.
Makko powder is used to fill the entire indentation. 3.) Makko (dar or laha) powder is used to fill the entire indentation. 
Again the koh press or its substitute is used to lightly compact the makko. 4.) Again the koh press or its substitute is used to lightly compact the makko.
Light one end of a small piece of an incense stick, about 3/4" long, and stick into one end of the line of compacted makko and let burn. 5.) Light one end of a small piece of an incense stick, about 3/4" long, and stick into one end of the line of compacted makko and let burn. (Another method of lighting the makko is to leave a small, slightly overhanging edge of makko on one of the legs of the U. That overhang is then lit from a match.)
Once the makko is burning you can sprinkle your incense mixture or ingredient directly on top of the burning makko. As the makko trail burns, place additional incense on the portion of makko that is burning. 6.) Once the makko is burning you can sprinkle your incense mixture or ingredient directly on top of the burning makko. As the makko trail burns, place additional incense on the portion of makko that is burning.
